A shiny fabric surprise! [Thursday Think Tank]

Technically, it is still Thursday where I am.  And it isn't over yet.  So let me share my Think Tank and latest surprise with you all...  A huge long box arrived in the mail this week and I was so confused, what did I possibly order that would be sent along in a box that looks like it is holding skis?  

This is it...

Three laminates!  Whew hew!  Of course I had no idea they were going to be packaged this way but hey...whatever...it was a great surprise!

On the left is Anna Maria Horner's Lou Lou Thi, I absolutely adore this pattern.  That one is for my Miss V.  The fabric on the right is Amy Butler because Miss E insisted on pink pink pink!

And I've always had my eye on Tula Pink's Prince Charming...those frogs are even cooler in laminate with that slight shine.  I thought it was the perfect choice for Baby No. 3...especially as I bought this baby gift for him/her...

So how fitting is the Prince Charming Print???

Now what do I plan on doing with these laminates?  Haha, well I think I might have mentioned it before, but I am going to make zip pouches for each child for their dirty travel things...to have in the diaper bag, to throw in the suitcase...  Anyone with children can attest, organization is a tiny important thing to clutch to with two eager hands as life gets more hectic.  I spoke with the Mr. and he suggested I make the pouches large enough for them to continue using as adults, so I am thinking 12 x 12, maybe with squared off bottoms.  And, now that I am writing this, I think I shall make two each with colored zippers, Red for Dirty and Green for Clean, that way they can have one for packing toiletries and one for storing icky spilled on clothes!

Anyway, that is my weekly think...how about yours???

LOL You know that I'm going to love the froggie! Those are gorgeous - you must show us the pouches when you do them!

I just got that froggie laminate a few weeks ago! I was surprised when it arrived on a tube, too. You're several step ahead of me, because I have no idea what to do with it yet.

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! It's great it arrived in a tube, I got some once that was folded and it was a pain to get the creases out. Nice to have it already be lovely to work with :)
They are going to awesome pouches!
